Abstract: Objective To determine the factors associated with adherence to physical activity in patients with chronic non-communicable diseases (CND) in the Ladera health network of the municipality of Santiago de Cali. Methods A case-control study was conducted with 268 adults diagnosed with diabetes, high blood pressure or obesity, 134 cases and 134 controls, treated at the Empresa Social del Estado (E.S.E) Ladera healthcare network. Univariate analysis included frequency analysis and descriptive statistics. Chi-square and t Student tests were applied for bivariate analysis, both with a 95% CI; binary logistic regression was performed for the multivariate analysis and probability was estimated using the Odds Ratio (OR). Results Factors with OR<1 —self-perception of physical condition, appropriate spaces for physical activity, self-care, and frequency of activity— promote adherence to physical activity. Factors with OR>1 —being alone during the day, having stopped doing physical exercise, considering physical exercise as unimportant, unsafe spaces, and lack of indication of exercise— were barriers to adherence to physical activity. Conclusions Perceiving oneself with good quality of life and having a physical activity prescription by the healthcare system, as well as adequate and safe environments, promote adherence. On the other hand, not belonging to a family group, considering physical activity prescription as unimportant and being in unsafe areas, hinder adherence. © 2018, Universidad Nacional de Colombia.
